Winter Tours

Winter generally begins in early December and tapering off towards the end of March.

Having said that, because of the mountain area we call home, winter can begin much earlier and hang around well into April.

Generally, the best winter opportunities are from the last week of January to the middle to end of March.

Please note:

  • all tours available with a minimum of two people booked except where otherwise specified
  • all taxes included.

Our Ski, Snowboard and Snowshoe Rental Service is
legendary for its service to groups.

The Equipment has the individual’s name on it, the equipment is set up ahead of time so when the group arrives, whether it’s the evening before or the day(s) of skiing, we will have them fitted and on their way in a very efficient and professional manner.

An added service is that, for an additional charge, we can pick up the equipment at the hill on the last day of skiing. This saves the need to stop in town to drop off equipment.

Rob Hutchinson of Lago Lindo School in Edmonton wrote:
"I have been organizing this same kind of trip for the last eight years and we have rented in a variety of places including Edmonton, Hinton and various ski hills. In all those different places we have found that SKIS PLEASE of Jasper is absolutely the best rental shop."
